Can anyone confirm, did John Dunn fight in the American Civil War?

Greaves and Knight don't mention it in their "Whose who..." book which is a collection of brief biographies but there seems to be a gap from 1853 when he married his first wife through the first half of the 60's. After that it notes he was busy importing weapons in the late 60's.

Come to think of it though, I believe Harry Flashman mentioned something about somebody resembling him on campaign...or maybe it was Maori Browne...  I mix them up in my head.

Hi ctsg/6pdr.

John Dunn's father was born in Inverness Scotland,

he emigrated to South Africa in 1820,he moved to
Natal in 1834, and died after being trampled to
death by the Elephant he was hunting in 1847. by
this time ' Jantoni ' was just 17 years old and
with no formal education, trade or skill, had to fend
for himself.as far as i am aware he never left africa,

So then I take it he never fought in the Franc-Prussian war either? Wink

Hi 6pdr.
From memory there is a thread on here regarding J.Dunn and his family over the years . I remember reading that there was a re-union a while ago , cant tell you exactly , but I think there are more than 1,000 relatives world wide that Dunn has had something to do with !. Didnt he have 8 wives or similar ? . I've never heard of him fighting in the American Civil War or the Franco - Prussian war , I doubt he could've , as he wouldn't have had the time to create what he did in Sth Africa .
Cheers 90th .

8?! You VASTLY underestimate the man. IIRC, he had 48 or 49 formal wives...depending upon whether that included the first (white) one. How could he possibly have time for travel on top of that?

He was busy building his empire in his corner of the world for the balance of his entire life...of that I am sure. Like Maori Browne, Henry Flashman is a fictional character...but they both claimed to have fought on the America frontier. WHat can I say, some of us prefer fiction. Flashman also fought in parts of Germany now that I think of it...did Maori?

Hi 6pdr .
Seems I left the 4 out from in front of the ' 8 ' ! Lol. Maori was in the Maori wars ( hence the name I suspect Rolling Eyes  )according to himself , did Flashman get there as well ??? LOL. No sign of Maori in Germany , but he did eat a baby once , maybe it was German !! No  No  No No .
90th Very Happy
